Roast & Toast’s Apple Chai-der

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | Sept. 18, 2021

With the change of season already upon us, crisp nights and cozy sweaters abound, and few things say fall quite like local cider — that is, until it’s spiked with chai. Enter: Roast & Toast Coffee in downtown Petoskey. Owned by coffee connoisseurs Bob and Mary Keedy, Roast & Toast has been keeping NoMi caffeinated since it opened its doors in 1993. Since then, its selection of small-batch beans — all ethically sourced and roasted on-site — and dizzying array of specialty coffees have earned it a spot amongst the state’s most sought-after destinations. Every September, Roast & Toast ups the beverage ante with its seasonal, tea-spiced apple “chai-der.” Equal parts Chai tea and local apple cider — generally Friske’s, though they also frequent other local suppliers — steamed up hot and topped with a layer of frothy foam, this savory sipper is autumn warmth in a glass. And at $3.65 for a 12-ounce order, what’s stopping you from double-fisting?  Find Roast & Toast at 309 E. Lake Street, Petoskey. www.roastandtoast.com, (231) 347-7767
